Discodeine - Discodeine

Discodeine, aka Pilooski and Pentile, presented their self-titled album debut “Discodeine”, released in March on Dirty / Pschent music. The album features notably collaborations with Jarvis Cocker from Pulp, Baxter Dury and Matias Aguayo from Comeme/Closer Musik, a man that we already talk about when we interviewed one of the producers of Kompakt Recordings, Rebolledo. Moreover, Discodeine is about club music and intensity, pop songs, voodoo, chicago house, futuristic disco, jackin' techno, analog basslines, ring modulation, krautdisco, mascarpone and chianti, so don’t hesitate to listen to the album and buy it!

The two French musicians have separately released some acclaimed records in the last past years (Pentile was involved in Octet and France Copland, Pilooski has remixed LCD Soundsystem, Mystery Jets, Bryan Ferry) before finding a mutual ground in 2007 around their love for sci-fi movies, weird club music and south western French cooking style!

More precisely, Discodeine is signed on French imprint Dirty, home label of the well known « Dirty edits » (a collaborative project between Pilooski and Dirty Sound System) and some other cool and weird compilations projects. They have already released 6 acclaimed eps, the last one, 'Synchronize' featuring Jarvis Cocker that we reviewed here, was released with DFA, home label of LCD Soundsystem in the US. Their eps have been supported by a wide range of musicians and DJs, such as Busy P, Simian Mobile Disco, Ivan Smagghe, Ewan Pearson, Erol Alkan, Chloé, Prins Thomas, Mickey Moonlight, Aeroplane and James Murphy.

Then concerning this album, you have a good housy introduction with “Singular”, then “Falkenberg evolves in an atmosphere very “Africanism”’s style with lovely gongs. There is also the catchy and hypnotic “Ring Mutilation”, with amazing loops. I really like the more underground composition “Homo-compatible” completely industrial! Whereas “Invert” has a club potential with a rhythmic more alternative, the album ends with a track of around 10 minutes, with synths that grows progressively and gave birth to a track that mixes genre. It is between progressive, house and experimental samples, without any beats. Quite unusual….

Globally this album shows all the potential of the French artists, using various genres to make people dream. And it’s a success. Discodeine will be ready to tour clubs and festivals from spring 2011.
